Strike another one up for China!

'U.S. destroys the earth building disposable appliances and laughs thinking about all the suckers who are forking over the dough.' -News at 2:00am

I've been watching every single P.O.S. product fall apart before my very eyes.

Our Honda Civic tranny gave out at 60K miles (just out of warranty)

Our three year old $1,500 Maytag fridge compressor.

My HP Laserprinter, that I don't even f*ing use...

Brother color copy/fax/scanner/printer out of ink and I never use that either, cost almost as much for the ink as for the printer in the first place.

Two cordless phone systems, a microwave, my Sony DVD camcorder and now the washing machine!  Just yesterday the ice cream scooper broke off in my hand!  WTF People! 

The washer is a 4 y.o. maytag flavor Admiral LNC6760B71 revision 20.  The tech bulletins show this one compatible with a couple dozen other models so it should be common to someone out there.

It started getting upset when unbalanced and shutting off.  Trying to run it again just made it hum but nothing moved.  A while later it would come on by itself or if I fooled with it.  Eventually the tub got loose and I noticed I could push it around and didn't remember being able to do that before (or was it my Jedi Mindskills). 

Then it started clattering like crazy like a wooden spoon in some bicycle spokes!

I reached in and was able to stop the tub by hand (if it was working I figured my arm should have broken off and been entanged in the aggitator).  Right?

I could smell something burning...(the belt?), so I shut it down and tipped her over. 

I could see some black dust from the belt underneath.

The belt was sure loose and running it made it slip and shake like all hell was about to break loose.

I took off the belt and checked the pulleys.  All were fine but the pump pulley allowed it to be wobbled a bit.  Drains normally so I guess they gave it some play. 

The tranny pulley when turned CW would turn freely but make little pops like flicking the side of a beer can (half empty).  Not sure if that's cause I had her lying down...or ?

CCW would go less than a quarter turn and wind up a spring and start turning the tub so that seems fine.

I checked the spin and it brakes fine when I open the lid so that's not an issue.

From what I could gather online the snubber is worn on the tub, it does have some powder I can swipe with a finger, but not a pile under it.  No oil leaks.

The belt is real loose and the motor flops side to side with the belt off.

Tightening the nut just sandwiched down on the insulator pad and didn't keep it put.  I was assuming those where for adusting the tension...but now I'm thinking maybe it might be an auto adjust deally with a bad tension spring????

So I need:

a snubber

(I've read about backing the bolts halfway to get the snubber out without blowing the brake and using electrical boxes to keep the springs open.  Any suggestions?)

to tighen this belt

Also the belt is not cracked, frayed, or glazed but the thin rubber coating on the V side is flaking.  I'm under the impression the belt is fine and that something happened suddenly to make the motor loose tension on the belt. ???

I've attached a photo and pasted the urls here as well. 

Thanks for any help.  I've spent way too much time on this and my laundry room looks like someone drove their truck through it.

Getting to fix this mean I get to drink a twelve pack as payment from the wife, but I need to order parts ASAP!

Help great and wise Masters of Appliantology!

If your gonna replace snubber might as well replace suspension springs too. As far as the belt being loose has 1 return spring on motor ,that is normal it should flap around, welcone to the world of maytag, its reverses direction in spin and agitatiion witch takes up on belt slack,
